Nothing happens in life by accident. Nothing occurs by chance. Nothing takes place without producing the opportunity for real and lasting benefit to you. The perfection of every moment may not be apparent to you, yet that will make the moment no less perfect.
If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.
Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Life is short. Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly
The future hasn’t happened yet and the past is gone. So I think the only moment we have is right here and now, and I try to make the best of those moments, the moments that I’m in.
Take control of the time you have with your kids as one day they will be all grown up and have their own friends and things to do. Cherish every moment you have with them now as you might not see them as they get older. It becomes their schedule not yours!
Our lives are composed of a finite set of moments that we choose how to spend.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
The moment is the sole reality.
Today is our most precious possession. It is our only sure possession.
One can appreciate & celebrate each moment вЂ” thereвЂ™s nothing more sacred. ThereвЂ™s nothing more vast or absolute. In fact, thereвЂ™s nothing more!
In a world addicted to speed, I blur the moments into one unholy smear.
The lesson learned: Never take your loved ones for granted. And if youвЂ™re ever lucky enough to find that one person in life who makes you love more than any other person could possibly make you love, you treat every day together as if it were your last. You cherish every moment.
For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.
